It has been a massive week of news for Microsoft fans! Daniel Rubino and Zac Bowden are here to give you the lowdown. Windows 10 October 2018 Update has been released and subsequently pulled due to issues with user files being unintentionally deleted. (Please note that the update was pulled AFTER this episode was recorded.)
In addition, the company held its Surface event — unveiling 4 new products during the presentation: Surface Pro 6, Surface Laptop 2, Surface Studio 2, and Surface Headphones. Separate from the Surface event, Zac reports on his look at Surface Hub 2, and his hands-on experience with its version of Windows Core OS.
HP trades aluminum for leather in their Spectre Folio convertible device. Whether or not it reinvents laptops is debatable, but Daniel does feel it moves things forward. Finally, Daniel and Zac share the most significant announcements from Microsoft Ignite 2018. Check it out!
